This was a small but very well presented memorial. It is quite moving. Sadly, the woman who stareted it has passed, but her family is keeping it up. I had not realized the number of firefighters who lost their lives.

Having personally experienced the horrors of Sept 11, we were moved by beauty and peace of this lovely garden of trees planted to commemorate the firefighters who lost their lives on that day.

Beautiful, simple memorial to the 340+ firefighters who perished on the event of 9/11. It really was well done and a beautiful memorial.

This is a beautiful tribute to the first responders to the Twin towers on 911. If you are in Kinsale and have a car it is worth the trip very moving.

If you don't have a car then I guess a taxi is your best way - it's a little outside the main city area, maybe a 10 minute drive.
